FC Ifeanyi Ubah goaltender, Franklin Akwari has expressed delight in facing former team, Akwa Starlets, now Dakkada FC in the Nigeria Professional Football League Matchday 3 clash.
The towering goalie who couldn’t hide his admiration for his former side while speaking with Lodgexpress in a pre-game conference on Saturday, January 9, said;
“It’s a great feeling facing a side I once played for, it’s a team I cherish so much and they have a place in my heart. Since I left them, things haven’t really changed much as I still communicate with the players and the coaches there, things haven’t really changed but despite that, I really love my new team, FC Ifeanyi Ubah.
“Dakkada is a nice team, they gained promotion last season, won their last game and so far this term, they’ve really impressed alot. They start their attack from the defence but that wouldn’t be enough to stop FC Ifeanyi Ubah from beating them to secure all three points come Sunday”.
